Pressing the case on the Goader Crucifixion Records
I await your tally of the number of Professional Standards cases for which Mr. Gonzalez has written the terminal letter instead of Ms. Kipley.
What is taking Mr. Gonzalez so long to get this letter written? This editorial sloth confirms my repeated recommendation that the board fire him.
I have had experience with Mr. Gonzalez's footdragging on promised documents. He promised both me and Bart Birdsall that he would write a handout to go to teachers who landed in the Professional Standards juggernaut for teachers to cite the measures they could take to protect themselves.
Two years later, I and Birdsall await that letter.
I suggest that the board and administration overrates Mr. Gonzalez's legal talents. He's a C student at best. I am a teacher: I know all the hallmarks of a C student. Mr. Gonzalez exhibits all of them. And his eating chips and drinking soft drinks on the podium during meetings show that he hasn't any idea of attorney protocol to make the board look like a serious body. I may have to turn him in for this on-the-job gaucherie to the Ethics Commission of the Florida Bar, to which he is no ornament.
Give me an estimated time of completion for Mr. Gonzalez's substitute summary statement outlining the Steve Kemp put-up case. I predict it will be full of holes that I will delight in pointing out.
The board and Ms. Elia should have bethought themselves before allowing this false case against Kemp to go forward and to keep him on suspension for a year. Nothing shows more clearly that the board and administration are in over their heads in the management department.
Bottom Line: Pray yield me a due date that I can expect Tom Gonzalez's summary of the Kemp crucifixion will be forthcoming. I am sure that the governor, the governor's task force on child abuse, the attorney general just foaming at the mouth for an election issue such as this, and the head of the Child Protection Services statewide will read Mr. Gonzalez's lucubrations on the Kemp case with great interest. I will.
